“Pic of the Week”, December 4, 2020: Monkey getting a Drink, Sri Lanka

Polonnaruwa (237)

Sri Lanka is home to several exquisite and fascinating historic sites, one of which is the medieval city of Polonnaruwa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There’s a river not that far from the ruins, but this toque monkey was innovative, deciding instead of having to scamper a mile or more for a drink, she would simply drink from water trapped in rounded stone holes (probably where logs had been inserted centuries ago).

Simple, but effective and thirst-quenching.
